Very nice interiors, comfy bed, nice bathroom, delightful breakfast, great tv package. We stayed the only 1 night and regreted that only one :) the only disadvantage is "how to get to the hotel" our gps went nuts and we were circulating round and round almost an hour :/ but the hotel itself compesated that :) we recommend it to all.

Stayed: July 2012, travelled as a couple

I've stayed at several Accor hotels around Porto and always end up staying here because of the mall next door, my previous review said nice location but dated hotel. Well checking into today I noticed a pile of old style TVs, and yes sure enough, years latter than other hotels they have finally replaced the TVs, best part not your usual hotel TV (ie no on demand porn) so this means if you have an HDMI cable you can easily hook up your computer to watch what you want.

Other than that there is nothing I can add to the other reviews

Although it's located in Gaia (not central Porto), the Hotel offers a high degree of quality for it's guests. It's not the perfect hotel for one who wants to explore Porto by foot, but for the business traveller it's perfect.

It's located right next to a huge shopping mall, so all your shopping needs are satisfied.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with river view.

I chose to be in Vila Nova de Gaia as people I was joining were staying in a flat there, but I would definitely suggest for people to stay in Porto itself. The hotel was good value for price, room big and clean. The view, not what I expected as the hotel is right close to the highway so could catch a glimpse of the river and of the sea. Hotel was super quiet, sort of deserted really, the little staff around very friendly and helpful. Only one didn't speak English, can get away with Spanish. Note that minibar has one of those systems that as soon as you take something out, even if to look at, it will be charged and also that although on map it seems near to river, it is almost on highway and the streets are very steep so there is no way you can walk anywhere.
